Why did you choose UC? “I chose UC because of the opportunity to continue playing lacrosse while receiving a great education in a close-knit community. UC is a great young program led by Coach Pete Campbell. UC provides awesome fan support and top notch facilities, which put them over the edge in my decision.”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “Last season we went 11-6 after being upset in the first round of the playoffs. This year we lose one of the top attackmen and FOGO’s in the state from last years team. We return half of our offensive starters, and return our entire starting defense. Our goalie has played in previous games, but finally gets his first full crack as a starter. We are a young but very talented team and I expect us to make the playoffs for the third year in a row.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my Mom, my Dad, Coach Mosey, Coach Robbie, Coach Gene, Coach Logan, Coach Travis, Coack Sheke, Coach Bienen, and Coach Wyant. I would also like to thank all friends and family who have supported me throughout the process.
“Lastly, I want to thank God for blessing me with the opportunity to play this great game in college.”
Other schools considered: Tusculum College, Fontbonne University, Missouri Baptist University, Brevard College
